I write what I feel…

Wedding Anniversary


I wrote this in celebration of my sister and brother-in-law’s wedding anniversary.


Wedding Anniversary


7 January 1971 – 7 January 2011

40 Years


Congratulations, I have to say,

On your reaching this special day:

The adventure of a lifetime shared,

A tapestry woven together where

Any tear in the fabric is fast repaired,

Goals and dreams have been attained,

Togetherness has been sustained

To live two lives in harmony as one,

Triumphant over challenges –

Well done!

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

    So nice to hear of successful marriages.

      By-the-way, John, you are well on your way to ‘GOLD’ – 50 years!

  11. I am happy for such couples. My parents will be married 67 years in September. Shucks, 67 days was good for me if it lasted that long at all.


  12. There is no better way than greeting with a poem, Denise.

    A poem is an ambassador of the writer that stays with the blessed.
